Web pirates - PAU inglés Andalucía 2004 resuelto

>Exámenes selectividad inglés resueltos Andalucía


Pirate flag with headphonesInternet users who distribute movies before they are sold in shops could face up to five years in prison under a proposed USA bill, that is to say, a plan for a new law. Video recording of movies in cinemas would also be prohibited. Those supporting the proposal say unauthorised copying costs film-makers an estimated $3 billion in lost sales.
The Motion Picture Association of America has tried to restrict the distribution of DVD previews to judges in film festivals. Illegal copies of movies end up being sold on street corners and made available through online networks just after they are shown in cinemas for the first time. This is due to audience members entering cameras into theatres and recording the film. If the bill becomes law, the maximum sentence for such practices will be five years plus financial damages.
Unauthorised video recording in cinemas is currently a crime in four states and the District of Columbia but it is legal in other states. “The person who puts online copyrighted material which is not legally available to the public should be penalized,” said California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein. The law proposal has received strong support from the movie and music industries. They also hope to have permission to explore personal computers to search for illegal material.
